But which meerkat is best ?

Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman yesterday revealed the strategy which Labour used during their leadership race

"We knew that Balls, Abbott and Bunham had no chance - and they weren't posh enough either - so we wanted to focus the membership on the 2 brothers, but weren't sure how best to do it.

"One idea was to get Harry Hill to do a YouTube video where he'd say that he liked Ed, and he also liked David. But which was best ? Only one way to find out ... FIGHT !!

"But then we reckoned the sight of Ed and David brawling might backfire when they introduced our Criminal Justice policy to reduce street violence - so we abandoned that one.

"Then John Prescott came up with the idea of comparing the Milibands to Meerkats. Well, he should know about that sort of thing, since he looks like a giant turtle himself. So we got Ed and David to wear silk dressing gowns and speak in silly foreign accents for a video and photos. They were brilliant. We just knew it was the right thing to do, so we set up the website - ComparetheMiliband.web - there was a poll on it where you could vote for Ed or David. It got millions of hits, although only 3 people actually bothered to vote. Ed won 2-1, so it just shows that the public at large are in tune with the Unions... sorry ....the party. Simples... init."
